"As an observer, I can endorse all of the athletes have improved each week, especially in the technical events like throws, jumps and hurdles,” Granite Belt Little Athletics committee member Daniel O'Dea said.

Granite Belt Little Athletes were asked about those improvements this week, including their favourite events and how they know they are improving.

Participating families have now been given access to ResultsHQ, where their results can now be found on the internet. It allows for easy comparisons, from measurements to positions to Season's Bests.
